Sun or shade, clay or loam, boggy or free draining, acid or alkaline - this pretty plant doesn't seem to mind where you plant it! Great for creek banks and areas that seasonally get soggy. The plant has heaps of folklore names reflecting its long history in herbal medicine, as it was used where we use aspirin today.

Filipendula ulmaria meadowsweet

APPEARANCE: Bushy herbaceous perennial with ferny leaves and fluffy clusters of cream-white flowers on long stems, loved by beneficial pollinators such as honeybees and butterflies. Makes a good cut flower for the home, and an attractive addition to a cottage style garden. Very cold tolerant once mature.
PLANTING: Sow seeds in autumn-Winter directly into final position or in seed trays/pots, and keep moist and shaded. Don't cover the seeds with soil. They germinate best with a cold period so if your winters are warm, put the seeds in a bag of compost in the salad drawer of the fridge for six weeks before sowing. Thin plants once they develop 2-4 leaves and are easily handled. Plant in free draining soil in a sunny location for best flowering. If planted early they will flower in the same year.
CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and continue to provide water especially during dry spells. Mulch plants to keep the shallow roots cool in summer. For an extra long flowering season, remove spent blooms and feed with liquid fertiliser
